Go on line for the locations.
ISKCON

I agree, very good food, clean housing, friendly people. However they do have very strict guidelines in a lot of those places because it's a spiritual retreat.

7yo: "Mom,I know which man is on a quarter and which on is on a nickel. They both have ponytails, but one man has a collar and the other man is naked. The naked man was our first president."

Good link
Thank you
I stayed in the ISKON temple in calcutta. All marble floors/walls,clean bathrooms,some rooms with private bathroom not all. 3 veggan meals daily cooked by the Monks.Yes verry strict rules,the chanting starts early in the AM daily.Good save place for females traveling alone as the monks are NOT allowed to touch you,verry little interaction.

Bring your own mossie net,there are hooks on the ceiling for this.One other thing i just remembered,Bring a sheet sewn in half like a sleeping bag this keeps all the critters out of your bed you are totally enclosed like in a cocoon. As sometimes the mattresses in India are made from Twigs/grasses=nesting little critters.

ISKON...got it, thanks. I'm going to the dr's tomorrow and will be asking for Malarone, not Larium.
Dd sees her doc next week and I will be asking for Zithromax just in case.

The list of things that we need keep getting longer and longer

I'm so glad I asked here what to do. Thanks for the wisdom.

Tyler, I emailed the homeopath you recommended but she hasn't emailed me back. Maybe she is busy or away somewhere. Maybe I need to be more patient too
